Welcome to Idea Trek!

Idea Trek is a both a platform and a service that supports the development and intake of ideas - to quickly assess their potential, determine where they go next, and give the college and idea owners the supporting evidence to drive them forward. This site offers a transparent look at ideas already in process, and invites you to comment, collaborate, and make them better.


Why Idea Trek?

Colleges that can innovate from within are best positioned to respond to a changing context. Davidson College wants to encourage as many ideas as possible in order to make the 'Big Shifts' identified in our strategic framework. We are fortunate to be part of a community that is good at generating a lot of ideas, and the best ideas can come from anywhere. But, it is hard to know where to take ideas or how to move them forward. It is also difficult to see the range of resources and people involved in ideas and initiatives.


Idea Trek is the place to start. Any and all ideas are welcomed. Ideas that carry significant risk will proceed through the college's Incubator. Follow these links to learn more about Idea Trek and the Incubator.
